2002 Colin Marc Santenay Vieilles Vignes

Medium red, just about holding onto a cherry colour. The nose is of powdery round red fruit – a little soft but with some depth and just the last traces of toasty oak. In the mouth this shows a little fat and a nice creamily long finish. The tannins are very subdued and the acidity is nicely balancing for the ripe fruit. Nice wine.

Medium, medium-minus colour. The nose is sweetly interesting, backed by a faint cedar note – gives the impression of a denser wine than reality, eventually a high toned alcoholic note develops. The palate has lovely fruit and slightly astringent tannin, but the acidity is rather tart. These negative aspects rather obscure a nice level of fat. I found this improving with aeration before slipping back as before.

Medium-pale lemon yellow. The nose is wide and fresh, just a little faint cream behind fruit that’s redolent of fresh-cut pears. Good texture and penetrating acidity that pushes the intense finish long. There’s a strong impression of savoury – though not toasty – oak as you enter the mid-palate. The oak just takes away a little of the fresh vivacity found in today’s tastiest 2004’s but this is still a very good wine that gets even better with aeration.
